Three of Silverado's estate vineyards bore the fruit for this sleek red, blended with 13% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, & 3% Cab Franc: Silverado Vineyard in the Stags Leap District, Mt. George Vineyard in Coombsville, & Oakville Station, a historic site on the western edge of the Oakville bench that's under the purview of UC Davis. Aged 16.5 months in French, Hungarian, & American oak, it displays serious tannins that build to eventually express reined-in power. Flavors of jammy blackberry are lengthened by graphite & bittersweet dark chocolate; vibrant & textural underbrush enters on the finish.
Refined Napa Cab not overshadowed by oak and overripe flavors, Abundant aromas of plum and boysenberry.
